They are all trading carbon dioxide. By giving cash to eco-entrepreneurs they can 'offset' responsibility for their pollution by paying someone somewhere else to reduce emissions for them. This is all part of the hottest new global market to erupt since the do. om explosion. According to the World Bank, the market in carbon dioxide will soon be worth billions. Beneath the celebrity sheen, however, lies a more sordid tale told brilliantly in this book - one in Development Dialogue's new What Next? series

The main cause of global warming is rapidly increasing carbon dioxide emissions primarily the result of burning fossil fuels despite international agreements to reduce such emissions. The trouble is that despite being aware of the serious situation, very few decision-makers are ready to tackle the problem at its roots. Instead of reducing the extraction of fossil fuels and searching for other solutions, current carbon-trading policies, in practice, favour the further exploitation of these fuels. Furthermore, new tree plantations, which are claimed as a means of mitigating the consequences of increased carbon dioxide pollution, often drive people out of their traditional living grounds and destroy biological diversity. This special report forms part of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation s What Next project. It focuses on carbon trading and is intended to influence current climate politics. In the debate on the Kyoto Protocol few actors have expressed a critical view. It is high time, for the purposes of debate and policy-making, to put the spotlight on the core problem fossil fuel extraction and consumption. This publication, therefore, takes a broad look at several dimensions of carbon trading. It analyses the problems arising from the emerging global carbon market pertaining to the environment, social justice and human rights, and investigates climate mitigation alternatives. It provides a short history of carbon trading and discusses a number of lessons unlearned . Nine case studies from diff erent parts of the world provide examples of the outcomes on the ground of various carbon off set schemes.

This book is a wonderful summary of the causes and false solutions of climate change. Carbon markets are just another false solution that won't solve the problem and only seek to continue to hurt the worlds poor.

Important reading on a topic that is not questioned often enough.
